Hello People of the Internet,
I just got invited to be a #glassexplorer not once, but twice for the #IfIHadGlass contest. Here’s what got me there:
#ifihadglass I would add to my #Playmonition 2nd screen real time game hint system built in Node.js. This would add a 2nd data layer to mobile games.
So, yeah, now if I could, I would like to get both pair of glasses. Not because I’m greedy, but because I would like to buy the 2nd pair for my son Geoff. He’s only 5, but I would like to see how he deals with them.
Geoff has helped me with game design on my games Tweets of the Dead (and even got a mention in this article on Kotaku: ) and my latest game KidElectro.
I think he deserves a pair, and also, he has amazing ideas. And between he and I, I think we could make some cool early apps for the Google Glass. And yeah, say what you like about how weird they are, they are the most futuristic thing to happen since the iPhone. Also, if you have no idea who I am, I’ve been doing Augmented Reality apps for quite a while now, so yeah, I’m excited.
Now here’s the question, would any of you back a Kickstarter or IndieGoGo for either Playmonition or KidElectro to help get Geoff and I to Los Angeles so we can get the Google Glass? Tweets of the Dead was a financial failure (has only sold about 200 copies on Android/iOS) but it’s only .99 cents on both Google Play and the App Store.
I really would only want to sell beta copies of KidElectro, because that’s a product that is going to be for sale. Playmonition is more of a Service, and I haven’t figured out how to monetize it yet. So yeah, thoughts/advice/kind words are all welcome right now.
